This sample looked almost entirely orange thanks to the thick coverage of bright pistils, which seemed to overtake the soft and frosty green tones and set it apart form many of the other selections on display. The trichomes pretty much covered the spectrum, with plenty of cloudy heads and a speckling of ambers, which added to the orange look it had. Though it was a little drier than some samples, it burned well and wasn’t overly dry, so no knock there. The trim could’ve been a little bit tighter, but most of the remaining guard leaves had a fair amount of trichomes on them.
Sweet and spicy, this strain’s Skunk lineage was evident from the start. Though it wasn’t an overtly pungent strain, it definitely made its presence known, especially when broken apart. This reminded us of some old school strains for sure, with a fresh quality that brought to mind some of the Haze Skunk hybrids such as Jack Herer.
Crisp and fresh, it had a taste that almost reminded us of sweet peppers, with some spicy qualities and a hint of sweetness. The smoke was super-smooth and caused almost no coughing, hitting the throat softly and not expanding much at all. Despite that, the final ash was a bit murky-looking, with dark gray areas that were flecked with white.
(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Energy increase, mood elevation, anti-anxiety properties, and moderate pain relief/distraction.
We really enjoyed the effects of this strain, which served to really energize us through the peak of the effects without ever feeling anxious or overwhelming. SK9 seemed to go with the flow of the day, making us feel comfortable and capable at nearly any project we took on. The second half came with some drowsiness, but a quick re-medication would fix that. The crisp Haze-influenced aroma and taste were both pleasing, if a bit indistinct, and we had no real complaint about the appearance. We like this strain as a daytime motivator, or perhaps as an after-work “up-then-down” type of med, where you can get things done and then ease into a relaxing night.
